Blowin’ in the Wind

Teaching about the Dust Bowl certainly doesn't have the same high-spirited allure as teaching about the Oregon Trail or the Gold Rush, but it is an important period in American history for children to learn about nonetheless. Over the last several decades, scientists have gained a better understanding about the dust bowl and what caused it. In short, over-grazing, over-farming, and general over-use of the land greatly exacerbated a climatological drought cycle in the s, making living and growing conditions virtually impossible. As our society becomes more aware of our ecological impacts on the earth, learning about the dust bowl and the great devastation and dislocation it caused becomes more important than ever. The books below help teach this tragic but important part of American history.
